Nets shake off loss, crush Nuggets
DENVER -- In 2002, after his New Jersey Nets team came to Denver and beat the Nuggets by 26, Jason Kidd described the game as a glorified practice.
Twelve years later, Kidd, now coach of the Brooklyn Nets, probably got a sense of deja vu.
Forward Paul Pierce scored 18 points before sitting out the entire fourth quarter, and the Nets raced out to a big lead early and never relented in a 112-89 win over the Nuggets on Thursday night.
